A Liberty Township woman was attacked by up to 11 of her own dogs in her home early Monday morning.

The Jackson County sheriff's department says the 62 year old woman was rescued by her roommate after he heard the woman's screams.

The roommate drove the victim to Allegiance Hospital. She was later flown to the University of Michigan Hospital for treatment of the dog bites described as "extremely serious."

Investigators say the attack happened in the home the couple shared in the 7800 block of South Draper Road. She had originally said she was attacked by two unknown dogs while walking one of her dogs along the street.

Neither the victim nor her roommate have been identified. The dogs are in quarantine at Jackson County Animal Control.
